Improbable Research Magazine Now Free Online

Talking about the Ig Nobel, CNET announces the following:

The Annals of Improbable Research, best known as the host of the Ig Nobel Awards, will now offer a free online version of its journal.

Via Slahdot.

Update: ReadWriteWeb also reports on the news that “all research funded by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), an agency with a $29 billion research budget, will now be required to be published online, free to the public, within 12 months after publication in any scientific journal.” Very nice! Twelve months is a long time in science though, and we’ll have to see what loopholes greedy researchers might find.
